Ms. Tanya Damasing
Hi! Welcome to my 6th, 7th, and 8th grade multi-categorical special education classes.
I am an international teacher from the Philippines. This is my first year of teaching in the U.S. Before coming to South Carolina, I taught in a special education center in the Philippines for four years.
I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education Major in Special Education at Xavier University - Ateneo de Cagayan in March 2014. Then, I taught in a special education center and, at the same time, studied law in the evenings. In March 2018, I earned my Juris Doctorate Degree (formerly Bachelor of Laws) at Xavier University - Ateneo de Cagayan. I passed the November 2018 Philippine Bar Examinations and took my Lawyer's Oath in June 2019.
I love spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy travelling during my vacations. I have been to Hongkong, Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand. I enjoy playing the piano, listening to music, and watching movies.
For School Year 2019-2020, I hope to widen my perspective and learn from experiencing the culture, education, and life in South Carolina. I also hope to share my culture and expertise to my students, co-workers, and friends in the Palmetto State.
